The scientific and clinical focus on honey which has come about in the past 30 years has led to the classification of medical grade honey and the commercial availability of highly regulated products. Medical grade honey has proven antibacterial activity, traceability of source, and lack of contaminants. It is gamma-irradiated to kill bacterial spores that may be present in raw honey (Amaya, 2015; Cooper, 2016). It is available in a wide range of products, including sterile tubes of honey ointment, honey impregnated tulles, alginates, gels and meshes.
